This is either due to embarrassment or because they are unaware that help is available.
Men can also suffer with incontinence and pain too with more than 10% of men over 65 having urinary problems. Pelvic health physiotherapy can help to alleviate and manage these problems and improve your quality of life with the correct assessment, advice and treatment techniques.
